Editing XF86Config-4


Ok, this is surely the ultimate newbie question.

How do I edit the XF86Config-4 file at the command prompt?

I need to edit it to install my GF4, and I can't work out which command to type in to edit it.

Muchos gracias.

just pick an editor, jove, emacs, vi, vim, pico, nano....... personally i'd recommend pico.

pico /etc/X11/XF86Config

that's assuming you have pico installed...
